Spotted: The Last Vestiges of Sears

Sears sign

SPOTTED BY: Flickr user elsie.nisonen

WHERE: Toronto Eaton Centre

WHEN: Thursday, March 27

WHAT: The ghostly impression of the once-proud, or at least once-large-and-intact, Sears sign (which itself appears to rest on top of the ghostly impression of an even older one-proud sign—one that might have resembled this). Sears’ Eaton Centre store has closed up shop for good, and the new large store that will be taking up residence at the mall will almost certainly bring a whole new sign—perhaps one that looks a little something like this:
